Your home’s air ducts, or ductwork, compose a carefully designed network for your home’s air to travel back and forth to your HVAC equipment. It’s very similar to one of our Austin highways. And just like our highways have to be maintained for the good of our vehicles, your air ducts need to be properly maintained for your home’s air. If they’re not, they can end up negatively affecting your HVAC system and even your health. At Airco Mechanical, from installation to maintenance/repair to cleaning, our professional technicians only deliver the highest quality of work and want to leave you 100 percent satisfied with our work.
Your home’s air ducts have multi uses––they’re used for your home’s heating, air conditioning, air distribution, air filtration, and dehumidification. To be able to handle all these duties, they need to be made of some pretty sturdy stuff. And they are. Typically, ductwork is created out of galvanized steel, aluminum, fiberglass duct board, flexible ducting, or fabric ducting. Each material is best suited for specific needs and locations of air ducts. When your air ducts are being designed, it’s vital that a professional who really knows ductwork, like ours at Airco Mechanical do, does the designing. Using the incorrect material can really impede airflow and may not last as long as is needed.
This complex system of ducts exists in your walls, ceilings, and floors, connecting all the rooms in your home. There are both supply and return vents, as well as many other components––plenums, dampers, vibration isolators, along with many more. Being sure everything is well maintained and clean helps to keep your system’s lifespan long, your energy costs down, and your health optimal.
Designing and installing air ducts is a job only the top professionals should do––and Airco Mechanical does. Knowing how to customize a line for your HVAC, in both design and installation, takes years of know-how. Poor air duct design can lead to inefficient use of your heating and cooling units, as well as a shortening of their lifespans. Our technicians have the experience and reliability to give you the greatest HVAC comfort in your home by pairing the right equipment with your ductwork. Customizing design and installation ductwork is what we’ve been doing for over 30 years.
Air ducts need maintenance and repair, and our trusted technicians can take care of that as well. Poorly sealed ducts result in leaks. This can be a substantial waste of energy, which results in inefficiency and higher energy bills. Over time ductwork can develop leaks in addition to other issues like mold and rust. Let our knowledgeable technicians prevent that from happening with regular maintenance. And if it does occur, call us to restore and seal your ducts to their original condition.
Air duct cleaning is another wise way to maintain your air ducts. It’s inevitable that they’ll have a buildup of bacteria, mites, and dust over time. Your return air vents suck in whatever air is circulating in your home. Years of buildup can cause quite a disconcerting collection that results in obstructions in your home’s airflow and polluting your air, decreasing your indoor air quality (IAQ). Our professionals will clean your ducts, giving you back optimum comfort in your home.
